Yes, Untill we get to know you here -or at least get to know your tractor :)- always mention if it is a 3 or 4 cyl model.
Your dealer sounds like he's full of hooey.
Put a test gauge on it somewhere and check the pressure - either on a remote hose or if you don't have remotes hook it to the test port on the blank cover under the seat - first photo.
Just as you can not see what your electrics without a meter you can not see your hydraulic pressure without a gauge. Cheap gauge can be had from Northerntool or ebay.
Post back with your findings. Someone here can surely help you.

I finally got the tractor running (the starter was bad) to be able to test as you suggested.
I first attached the guage to the remote and the gauge did not register a pressure, but the arms did come up.

Today I attached the guage to the plate under the seat identified in you picture. Again the pressure did not register. I reved the engine just to see if that made a difference. Although the arms came up faster it did not make a difference on the guage.

There was pressure, apparently not enough to register on the guage . I know because I did not let the arms back down before disconnecting the gauge and as I removed the gauge the fluid shot out of the port and the arms went back down.

The guage came from the local Ford dealer and looks just like the one in your photo.

Where do I go from here? Thank you for you input.
